Welcome to Game Over, Cancer!

It's time to tell cancer that it's Game Over!


Game Over, Cancer! is Atlantic Canada's largest console gaming fundraiser! We raise money for the Canadian Cancer Society through many video game related events every year. This year we have teamed up with Frag for Cancer, and our other generous sponsors, to bring the event to a completely new level and raise even more money for cancer research. Come out, play some awesome games, and raise money for a great cause.

Hope to see you all there!

LATEST NEWS from Game Over, Cancer!
Hey guys! Sorry for the delay but we wanted to make sure we had all the numbers locked down before we made a post. What started as a one time event in 2015 has now grown to something we can be so proud of. We've expanded, we've learned, and we've put our hearts into these events to bring you the most enjoyable time possible and to raise as much as we can. It is both our honour and our pleasure to announce that we raised $3000 this year bringing our total to $5400. We couldn't have done it without all of you. So keep sharing, liking, and involving your friends to make next year even more of a success. We aren't stopping here. So stay tuned to this page to keep posted on what's to come for Game Over, Cancer! Thank you all; participants, sponsors, volunteers and everyone else who played a part. -The GoC Team
